Do you yearn for deeper intimacy?
Are you ready to relinquish habitual patterns of control?
Are you seeking to recapture who you truly are, completely opening yourself to receive?
You can't help but keep peeking at these parts that are calling to you.
It is safe to interact with all parts of yourself, learning ways to fully accept all that you are.
The process of unraveling that leads to the deep connection you crave begins with trusting someone to guide you - body, mind and spirit - into vulnerable and at times, scary places.
In Intimately Tied, with the utilization of Shibari, we help you find that freedom by leaning into the experience of surrender and receptivity.
This tool was reclaimed as the art of intimacy. In its historical origin, Shibari was utilized as an ancient Japanese torture ritual, for prisoners of war.
Post war, it was eventually used in theatrical performances, which immediately went underground where it was eroticized and referred to as Kinbaku, which means “the beauty of tight binding”. It’s up to the individual to choose what to make of it.
As a facilitator, it can be a form of “torture” (with a purpose!), it can be erotic, or tender and nurturing. The actual spectrum of play is vast and so are its possibilities.
While restrained, the outer world fades away, the inner more apparent and magnified.
You're fully immersed in the body, within the present moment, guided through your innermost state.
What nourishes your deepest need, your deepest calling within this exchange?
What in you is longing to be fulfilled?
How do you want to be spoken to, touched, felt?
While doing so, we guide you through various forms of communication ranging from “you’re the most precious thing in the universe” to “I’m here to brutally ravish you!” and everything in between, based on what you need.
We will use…
Earth or Water.
Air or Fire.
Speeding up or slowing down.
Neatness or creative mess.
Relaxing or triggering.
…all while playing on a bed, floor, or using suspension.
Our non-verbal cues come across very acutely through the way we tie, while the act of being immobilized makes each of us give up our own agenda and become open to receive.
We will use these tools within Intimately Tied, reconnecting the emotional and physical body, offering a safe space to deeply surrender and allow yourself to receive your own personal desires.
It's the process of tying and untying - dropping you deep into your body and opening up to endless possibilities.
In my decade-long BDSM experience I had grown used to playing with a multitude of tools and toys, only to finally discover that shibari has everything I need to facilitate a deep experience of surrender. I use ropes to guide my partner into a state of surrender, releasing control and breaking open the emotional potential.
Intimately Tied is the art of tying and an intuitive emotional connection for all participants.
Based on my tantric knowledge of sacred rituals of transfiguration, I have designed a way to use shibari to enter a space of alternative consciousness that allows for deep transformation.
Release shame, understand your needs, nurture yourself on the deepest levels and so much more during this 3-day experience.
Here is what your retreat will look like:
You will spend your weekend utilizing and learning various tools such as the art of relating to one another (Kinbaku) and the basic techniques of tying (Shibari).
All of this is done within a safe and consensual container consisting of circle, activity and reflections.

"I never really understood what it was to self soothe or self nurture, now I get it and can access it anytime!"
"I knew that I was carrying shame around my body, I didn't know how deep it went...until I was able to process it in a safe space and find compassion and connection to my body in a way I never had before! I feel so much lighter!"
"I more clearly understand how to be present in all of my therapeutic activities, I didn't realize how much I disassociated from them until now"
"Now I see how important my self care practices are for the growth of my business and my relationships and have made huge shifts in prioritizing it for my business!"
I’m not a Dominatrix, not a masseuse and not a psychotherapist.
A Vulnerability Coach is the best way to describe my profession.
My mission is to acquaint you with your own self - raw and unmasked.
My journey has empowered me to proudly step outside norms in order to express my own sexuality and, through my work, assist others in doing so.
I felt ready to step up and dive into my biggest dreams and here I am - offering others counseling and journeys into self-discovery and spiritual illumination.
